Molly’s Holiday Tips:

1. Don’t feel like you have to send Christmas cards. You don’t. It can be fun if you have a kid and there’s a picture or something creative, but isn’t there enough to stress about at the holidays already? I will not be offended if you don’t send me a card.

2. If you do send Christmas cards, at least make them somewhat personal. If you must rely on Hallmark to convey your holiday sentiment, at the very least sign your name. And maybe put “Dear (Recipient’s Name),” for added class.

3. Ok, really these aren’t so much tips as they are me expressing my frustration over the fact that I just got a Christmas card that said “Seasons Greetings” (printed by the card company) inside and it wasn’t even signed. Like, literally just put in an envelope and sent to me. Why bother?

4. This concludes Molly’s Holiday Tips.

    #3 reminds me of the time I got an empty fortune cookie. I’m still trying to figure out the meaning …

    You never hear about anyone sending Chanukah cards… I can only suppose this is because you would have to send everyone eight of them, and let’s be honest, that would just be more trouble than it’s worth.

    I send out 100 Christmas cards every year, so the extent of personalization on mine is that I sign them all and I hand-address the envelopes with both their address and the return address. Even keeping it that simple means I spend a good 8 hours or so getting them ready to mail out.

    How ’bout a singing Christmas telegram instead? You’re embarrassed at the guy in the Santa suit singing out in the hallway and the guy in the Santa suit is embarrassed at singing in your hallway. Its an embarrassment of riches.

    Hi Molly,
    Just saw a Sonic commercial and when the name “Molly” came up on the screen something clicked and I thought that I recognized you – so I googled around and found that we did go to Tufts together! Congratulations, it looks like you are doing great!
